Doodled Books is proud to present a brilliant new book called The Mysteries by the highly acclaimed writer Lisa Tuttle. Is it a detective novel? No. A thriller? No. Mystery? No. Fairytale? No. Fantasy? No. The truth is it's all of those things. Already it has gained numerous rave reviews and even George R R Martin (Game of Thrones) has recommended it on his website as ‘Richly imagined and beautifully written.’

Lisa has signed, lined, dated and numbered first edition first printings at her home in the UK and they are not to be missed.
About the book
Laura Lensky's daughter, Peri, has been missing for two years. For the police it's a closed case - she wanted to run away - but for her mother and boyfriend, Hugh, it's a different story.
When Laura hires private investigator Ian Kennedy, it is a last-ditch attempt to find her daughter before she leaves for America.
Drawn in by strange parallels to an obscure Celtic myth and his first, almost unexplainable case, Ian takes the job. But his beliefs are about to be stretched to their limit - there are darker and more devious forces at work here than any of them imagined.
'A deft and daring blend of mystery and dark fantasy ... Richly imagined and beautifully written' George R. R. Martin.

'A thriller, detective story, and fantasy all in one. A winner' Dean Koontz.

'Its seductive charm pulling me in, and not letting me go ... I want to read more of her (Lisa's) books. She has a lovely style of writing' Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell.

'One of the more unique fairy-centric novels. 7.5/10' Fantasy Book Review.

'Such a great little read ... It is a tale that feels timeless and calls for a quick re-read' Upcoming4me.

'I'd undoubtedly put Lisa Tuttle on my must-read authors list. Her own love of (and respect for) the myths and legends that make Scotland such an intriguing place is in abundant evidence in these stories, and that kind of enthusiasm for one's subject matter makes any author worthy of note' Over The Effing Rainbow.

'The sort of slow-burning, haunting novel that digs its claws into the reader and never lets go'
